Cessnock Country Women’s Association received a $6,000 grant to refurbish its premises on Vincent Street.
The funds have contributed to a renovation of its rooms which are host to the Association’s evening meetings and community events.
“The CWA is a well-known and respected community organisation locally. The group connects with the community through a number of fundraising activities aimed to help those vulnerable in our area,” Federal Member for Hunter Joel Fitzgibbon said.
“This grant will allow for the refurbishment of its base in Vincent Street which will make a significant difference for the volunteers who host activities in the space.”
41 volunteer organisations in the Hunter electorate have shared in $145,395 under the latest Volunteer Grants program.
Volunteer Grants aim to support the efforts of Australia’s volunteers. The grants provide small amounts of money that organisations and community groups can use to help their volunteers. The grants aim to support the volunteers who help disadvantaged Australian communities and encourage inclusion of vulnerable people in community life.
